Chopard Mille Miglia Speed Black Power Control Watch
You know, I really had to restrain myself with this one. With the phrase "Black Power" in the name of the watch, i started to wonder why it was released in Singapore only? Then I realized that going off on a tangent about a loud and proud "Black Power" watch might not be the best idea. For the bustling Singapore watch market Chopard has released a cool looking version of their XL Mille Miglia model in all balck with orange. This limited edition Mille Miglia Speed Black Power Control watch has a great look with a name that screams "hire someone who natively speaks English to name your watches that have... English names Chopard!"
The case is in steel with a very hard black DLC coating (glossy). It has a power reserve indicator for the mechanical automatic movement that is done like a fuel gauge, and a reverse mounted magnifier lens for the date window. The hands are ultra easy to see, and reading most every Mille Miglia watch is a treat in terms of aesthetics and legibility. The watch is matched to Chopard's standard Dunlap tire tread rubber strap, and is limited to just 150 pieces. I believe all of them are only available via The Hour Glass (a watch store) in Singapore.
